Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Lauder Lodge care home.

Thank you for welcoming my precious friend. The team kept me informed during lockdown and welcomed me back warmly. They took time to read the books he had written and baked a wonderful birthday cake. Thank you all for being part of this wonderful family.

Relative of a resident, June 2021

The staff they have are very friendly. they make a point of knowing who you are. It is quite difficult for them as my relative does not want to get involved but they try their best to encourage her.
